One of the things that impressed me about Starfinder when it first came out was the unique feel of the Solarian. It would have been very easy to make some kind of Jedi-equivalent class with energy swords and space-wizard powers. Instead we have this weird Star powered melee class (in […]
New art post this week. This one was just a concept I’ve been playing around with in my head. Sort of a fire bender in a futuristic setting.
So I’m running an online play-by-post game, and found I needed a starship combat map. The easy route would be to buy some PDF starship combat hex-maps, and that is a quick way to get going with some high quality maps. But I have the time and software to make […]

As I was working through the new Starfinder book Near Space, I was reminded of how much I enjoy reading through new setting books and imagining where the adventure hooks the authors provide might lead. The right couple of sentences can lead to a whole adventure to send your players […]
